Craoi Na Mona 10YO 700ml
"Craoi Na Mona is pronounced "Cree Na Mona" and in Gaelic means 'Heart of the Peat Bog'.
Peat has traditionally been used in the drying of barley in both Ireland and Scotland and it is normally this process that lends a 'peated' whiskey its distinctive smokiness. In reality there is another way to add a smoky smack to whiskey. This is what we have done with this batch of Craoi na Mona. In fact, after maturing for 10 years in Ireland in American Oak casks we shipped it over to Scotland where it spent a few short months in casks that had previously matured heavily peated Islay malt. These casks, though emptied, still retained a huge smokiness we wanted to bottle. We weren't sure what would happen but are categorically pleased with the results. We hope you agree that the heart of this Irish whiskey is greatly enriched by its smoky, peated character." - Berry Bros & Rudd
